First building dedicated to kids

A 20-million-Euro project in Salzburg-Gnigl will see a new kindergarten, school and crèche in the same complex – a first in Austria.

The school, kindergarten, crèche, city council housing and the club house on the Minnesheimstraße in Salzburg-Gnigl have always been a planning nightmare. One solution to the issue is to put together all the institutions in a new educational campus in Gnigl.

Mayor Heinz Schaden (Austrian Social Party, SPÖ) said: "The concept of putting together three to 10-year-old children in the same educational complex is completely new in Austria."

The construction plan of the German architect firm Storch, Ehlers and Partners, who also designed the Unipark Salzburg-Nonntal, was chosen out of 22 proposed projects.

The advisor for town planning Claudia Schmidt (Christian-Democrat Party, ÖVP) said: "The bidding base was not just the pedagogical and architectural concept – we had requirements in terms of energy consumption and accessibility, which the winner project illustrated in the best way."

Work on the Gnigl educational campus is due to start in 2014 and last two years.
